letting go.


have you ever had that feeling that things get a little too crazy, everywhere around you seems a little too noisy, so much so that you can hardly hear yourself think?

it has been wonderful to be able to get some quiet time even just for one day.

i realized one important thing, that we actually all know already, but just need to be reminded of..

let go of clutter in your life.


whether it be material or emotional clutter, we gotta learn to let go. there are too many things in life that stress us out already - work, errands, duties, bills, traffic, issues among friends, relationship issues, family problems. there are many things in life we have no control of, so what we can control, we must.



let go of envy.

why does she have this and i don't?
why can't i go where they go?
why her and not me?

whatever it is you see in or with others that you wish you had, take comfort in the fact that you also have something that they do not have. you set of experiences, your struggles, the people who love you, no one else has that but YOU. let go of envy and take pride in the things you have that others do not.



let go of pretensions.

you're too shy to do this cause people might judge you.
you're afraid to talk to her because she might not like you.
you don't want to share your talent cause you might get embarrassed.

if you yourself hinder yourself, if you yourself stop yourself, if you yourself judge yourself, then what is left for you? how can you expect others to believe in you if you don't believe in yourself? nobody is perfect. stop worrying about what others might think and go for it. you are the only one getting in your own way.



let go of closed-mindedness.

each and every one of us are different. we have different ideas, values, opinions, likes, dislikes, and biases. you cannot force your beliefs on anyone. if you are going to stress yourself because others do not share your thoughts, then you will be stressed forever. avoid thinking that your way is the only right way. learn more and be happy with your life by being open to how different people think.



again, these are things we all know already.. but sometimes, with all the distractions around us, we tend to hold on to these unnecessary things that hinder our happiness and peace of mind.

and we all want happiness and peace of mind, don't we? :)
